Xbox One seven day release advantage will make little difference - Gara

Sony UK MD Fergal Gara has said that the seven day release advantage that Xbox One has over PS4 in the UK will make little difference.

“Would you rather have seven days or sixteen months?,” Gara told CVG during an interview. “I think it’s a moot point really, we’re effectively launching at the same time. I don’t think seven days is going to have an advantage or disadvantage.

“[Our price] is an advantage, but it can move over time. Value to the consumer is everything, which is price and quality of content for that price. We feel in very good shape on that front. We’re really pleased.”

Gara also told the site that PS4 pre-orders continue to grow, even after the announcement at gamescom that the hardware giant already had well over 1 million pre-orders.

“What I will say is that it has continued to march ahead strongly, and there’s no signs of it slowing down either,” he said. “That’s hugely encouraging, we know there is a huge desire out there for new consoles, and that people want a PlayStation 4.

“At gamescom the global number was over one million units, that’s ‘over’, and the number has grown substantially since then.”

PlayStation 4 arrives on November 29.

They are right it will make no difference on release date it is all about games and what ones you prefer, really doubt anyone will buy one just so they do not have to wait a week at this stage they have probably made their minds up.
